Welcome to my world of painting with light.

To me light painting is an expression of our true selves. It's about the trace we create and leave behind. Through science, we now know that our bodies are emitting light. So in a way, we've been and are constantly light painting by living.
Light painting is an amazing form of art. It in hence your imagination, wakes up your intuition and reflects who you are and where you are at, it's like a mirror of the soul.

Radiant Light

Radiant Light

Most of what shapes reality is invisible. I’ve been fascinated by what we can’t see, from inner to outer worlds.
